Absenteeism & Make-up Hours
It is strongly advised that make-up hours are done as soon as possible after they are missed - especially if it occurs in the middle of a course. This allows students to cover the missed material prior to returning to the course. Please note that this is done in private review at the student’s expense. Students have six months to make up any hours missed. If they exceed this timeline, the course is forfeited and the entire course must be retaken in order to examine and certify.
Matwork, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair and Barrels Essential courses: Less than five hours of a course - 2:1 ratio of hours missed to hours made up (i.e. students need to make up half the time in private review). More than five hours of a course – 1:1 ratio of hours missed to hours made up (i.e. students need to make up the entire time in private review).
ISP and Advance courses: Any make-up hours for these courses are done on a 1:1 ratio due to the density of the course material and the expectation that it will take the same amount of time to teach one student as to teach a group.
Note: As a Licensed Training Center we will inform Merrithew via the submitted class list that a student has not completed a course. A note will be made on the student's file. A letter of completion will be sent to the student when we will confirm that that the student has completed the remaining hours.
